International solid waste importation and management act

In 2007, Rogers sponsored the International Solid Waste Importation and Management Act of 2007 (H.R. 518), which would amend the Solid Waste Disposal Act to authorize states to restrict receipt of foreign municipal solid waste. The House passed the bill in April 24, 2007.

National Uniformity for Food Act

Rep. Rogers introduced the National Uniformity for Food Act in the House on October 27, 2005. The bill stated that no state or local government would be permitted to require a warning relating to food, including any component or package of the food, unless the specific warning had been required by the FDA and the state warning was identical to the FDA warning. This requirement of national uniformity in food warnings would apply to the food label, advertising, posters, public notices, and other forms of communication. The act was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, of which Rogers was a member, and the committee reported on it on February 28, 2006. The bill was passed by the House on March 8, 2006, and referred to the Senate, but no action was taken there.
